My father has a 1922 Buick touring convertible. Prior to the last 3 years this was a show vehicle. He hasn't been able to get it started over the last few years and has little time for the vehicle anymore. The vehicle is located in Baltimore, MD. I will provide pictures if anyone is interested in the vehicle. Also, if someone knows a mechanic that is familiar with similar Buick models that lives in the vicinity of Maryland, please let me know. Thanks
Hi, I just bought for my french grandfather a 1922 Buick Raodster from Chicago. The car has a great look (see pic next to his 1932 Citroen C6 G) but the trouble comes when then engine gets warm. My Grandfather (80 Years old) has been restauring lots of WWII military vehicle but he is not so familiar with the pre war american engine. So I'm posting here hoping to get a little help from people who must know a bunch about these engines :-) Here are the symptoms and facts that we've found : - Start fairly easly with a little chock and idle no problem then - the chock handle has to be set about 1/8 clock wise from the hot position in order to idle properly - The engine just stop when setting the chock anywhere else counterclock wise from the position described above - When the engine gets warm the engine slowly stall, and when puting some gas it keeps runing but we can't drive it, it stall after a few meter - we changed the coil, capacitor, and all the spark plug but it didn't help - The battery is charging - there is a good compression (really hard to turn the engine manually) So we start thinking about the carburator that is not working properly when the air from manifold gets hot. From what I read on the forum the carb on this car is not easy to adjust. So before we take it apart do you have some tips, advice, ideas that could help us on our problems I added pic of the carb view in the Manual Uploaded with ImageShack.us
